Litfuse Publicity Tours Presents: Secretly Smitten [Paperback] Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Denise Hunter, Diann Hunt
There’s a secret in Grandma Rose’s attic—a forgotten set of dog tags belonging to her first love. But David Hutchins was killed in action and never returned to Smitten. How did the dog tags end up in the attic?
The mystery intrigues Rose’s three granddaughters—Tess, Clare, and Zoe—and they decide to investigate, though their mother, Anna, warns against meddling. But as the seasons turn and the mystery unravels, the three young women and their mother encounter some intriguing mystery men of their own. Has a sixty-year-old puzzle sparked something new for this close-knit family of women?
Join popular romance novelists—and real-life BFFs—Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt, and Denise Hunter for four delightful intertwined tales of mystery and sweet intrigue.

What a joy this book was. I loved it!!
We visit this wonderful romantic town in Vermont, and hear about some of our old friends, but this is 5 new romances. Yes five!!
There are four novellas by these great authors, they start with one family and take it to the conclusion. A very fast read!
These are the Thomas's sister's stories, their Mom and their Grandmother, Rose. It begins with finding some old dog tags in the attic. Here Colleen Coble takes us with Tess, and Ryan, and adorable Sophia. Ryan lives in the home of the family, where the former boyfriend lived. Could their be some answers in the boxes that remain in his attic?
The second Thomas sister's story is told by Kristine Billerbeck, and that is Zoe. She is opening a new business in Smitten...Make Me A Match!! When the new City Manager William runs into her ladder left on the sidewalk. Thus begins a new push of wills, and maybe some romance!
The next story belongs to Diann Hunt and her story of Anna Thomas, Knit One, Love Two. She is the girls Mom, divorced for ten years, and her yarn shop. With her we meet Michael, a man who is an anonymous benefactor. This is such a sweet heart warming story!
The last author is Denise Hunter and this is Clare Thomas's story. We begin with her being dumped by her boyfriend Josh, he called her boring. Clare is not upset about the breakup...she is glad, but she doesn't like to be called boring!! She decides to change her life a bit, and out of character she hires Ethan without a background check. So begins her romance?? Clare is a gifted landscape designer, but bad at love, can she change? Ethan is a God Loving drifter, can he stay put? Be ready for some delightful family dinners, and loving people who are there for each other. Three generations of Woman!!
Once you start you won't be able to put this one down, I read it in one day! This is the second book in this series, I do recommend you read the first, but it is not necessary.
I received this book through the Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
